Hudson Mohawke — world-beating Glaswegian of family LuckyMe, house GOOD Music — is back with “Chimes.” Devotees of HudMo and Lunice’s vowelless super-duo TNGHT will remember this apocalyptic stunner from live shows (or for the armchair devotees like me, live videos) as one of those during which the latter member ceded the ones and twos and cut some shapes out in front. From the first scratchy snares, every part of the track forces its way out; ludicrously huge bass synths collide with overdriven drums, those unstoppable horns braying down the walls while blippy fireworks arc overhead. HudMo’s blistering energy is here in full effect, sending the track rattling and peaking all the way through. Give it a listen below.
“Chimes” will appear on Hudson Mohawke’s EP of the same name, out September 30th via Warp.
